"Yo ho ho? get ready for a ripping good yarn.... This nonstop action adventure has all the elements of a perfect summertime thriller - pirate treasure of unimaginable worth, 300-year-old cryptograms written in invisible ink, a legendary curse, and a driven captain who will stop at nothing to reach his goal. The red-hot authors of Reliquary score another big winner." (Library Journal)
New to Preston/Child works, my first was "Ice Limit", this was a another fascinating listen. Scott Brick does an excellent job of keeping interest throughout.
Anytime the characters were stumbling around in the dark
Yes it was a great story and well read with realistic mystery.
The historical interest (fiction of course but fun) which was the center of the story.
Had a relaxed voice when I may not have felt that way reading the book - it helped for me to put the mysteries in the right place and added to my guess as to what was going to happen next.
Recommend to anyone who likes a good mystery. I was concerned it may be too much about sailing or pirates - but it was not.
part 2 of this book is a bad file.. i tried a number of times to reload each time my device was rendered usless. i would like my money back.. Part one was great. with out part 2 it was a waste of time and $.

What a ride. This is an excellent book and is very well read. Both my husband and I enjoyed it.
I "have been" an avid fan of P&C's books - starting with Brimstone and including all of the Pendergast volumes. I have even enjoyed some of the others. But - - - THIS book sinks so far into the depths of formulaic writing that it nearly put me to sleep. I could have written the rest of the book myself after the first dozen chapters and I was pleading to be put out of my misery during the last two dozen chapters. It seems to me that P&C have become bored with their writing - and, sadly, their writing has become borderline boring as a result. I'm not sure that I'll even start the remaining P&C book I have purchased from Audible - let alone purchase any future volumes by these authors.
Great story. Very suspenceful and hard to put down. I was disappointed when it was over. Also, I love listening to any book narrated by Scott Brick.
Preston & Child are so good together that each book is an adventure onto itself. The twist, turns and suprises are never predictible and always exciting. This book is a wonderful way to loose yourself for hours! Enjoy.
